NAME

CommonMark::Node - Node of the CommonMark parse tree

SYNOPSIS

    my $html = $node->render(format => 'html');

    my $header    = $doc->first_child;
    my $level     = $header->get_header_level;
    my $paragraph = $header->next;

    my $link = CommonMark::Node->new(CommonMark::NODE_LINK);
    $link->set_url('http://example.com/');
    my $text = CommonMark::Node->new(CommonMark::NODE_TEXT);
    $text->set_literal('link text');
    $link->append_child($link_text);
    $paragraph->append_child($link);

    $doc->render_html;

DESCRIPTION

CommonMark::Node represents a node of the parse tree.

new

   my $node = CommonMark::Node->new($type);

Creates a new node of type $type. See "Node types" for a list of types. Note that the node creation functions provide a more powerful interface.

Rendering

    my $result = $node->render(
        format        => $string,
        sourcepos     => $bool,    # Optional
        hardbreaks    => $bool,    # Optional
        nobreaks      => $bool,    # Optional
        unsafe        => $bool,    # Optional
        width         => $int,     # Optional
    );

Convenience function to render documents. Supported formats are 'html', 'xml', 'man', 'commonmark', and 'latex'.

sourcepos, hardbreaks, nobreaks, and unsafe enable the respective render options.

width is passed to renderers that support it.

    my $html  = $node->render_html( [$options] )
    my $xml   = $node->render_xml( [$options] )
    my $man   = $node->render_man( [$options], [$width] )
    my $md    = $node->render_commonmark( [$options], [$width] )
    my $latex = $node->render_latex( [$options], [$width] )

These methods render the contents of the node in the respective format.

$options is a bit field created by ORing the following constants:

    CommonMark::OPT_DEFAULT => 0
    CommonMark::OPT_SOURCEPOS
    CommonMark::OPT_HARDBREAKS
    CommonMark::OPT_UNSAFE
    CommonMark::OPT_NOBREAKS

Render options can be imported from CommonMark with tag opt.

    use CommonMark qw(:opt);

$options may be omitted and defaults to OPT_DEFAULT.

SOURCEPOS adds information about line numbers in the source file to the XML and HTML formats.

HARDBREAKS translates "softbreak" nodes (typically corresponding to newlines in the input) to hard line breaks. This is only supported by some renderers. The HTML renderer, for example, generates a <br /> instead of a newline character.

NOBREAKS translates "softbreak" nodes to spaces. Requires libcmark 0.25 or higher.

UNSAFE only affects the HTML renderer. It allows raw HTML blocks and some dangerous links.

See the documentation of libcmark for a more detailed explanation of the render options.

$width specifies the number of characters at which lines are broken. A value of 0 disables line wrapping. The default is 0.

Accessors

    # Integer values

    my $int = $node->get_type;
    my $int = $node->get_header_level;
    my $int = $node->get_list_type;
    my $int = $node->get_list_delim;
    my $int = $node->get_list_start;
    my $int = $node->get_list_tight;
    my $int = $node->get_start_line;
    my $int = $node->get_start_column;
    my $int = $node->get_end_line;
    my $int = $node->get_end_column;

    $node->set_header_level($int);
    $node->set_list_type($int);
    $node->set_list_delim($int);
    $node->set_list_start($int);
    $node->set_list_tight($int);

    # String values

    my $string = $node->get_type_string;
    my $string = $node->get_literal;
    my $string = $node->get_title;
    my $string = $node->get_url;
    my $string = $node->get_fence_info;
    my $string = $node->get_on_enter;
    my $string = $node->get_on_exit;

    $node->set_literal($string);
    $node->set_title($string);
    $node->set_url($string);
    $node->set_fence_info($string);
    $node->set_on_enter($string);
    $node->set_on_exit($string);

Various accessors to get and set integer and string values of a node. Not all values are supported by every type of node. Getters return 0 or undef for unsupported values. Setters die on failure.

See "Constants" for a list of constants used for node types, list types, and list delimiters.

Tree traversal

    my $iterator = $node->iterator;

Creates a new CommonMark::Iterator to walk through the descendants of the node.

    my $next   = $node->next;
    my $prev   = $node->previous;
    my $parent = $node->parent;
    my $child  = $node->first_child;
    my $child  = $node->last_child;

These methods return the respective node in the tree structure.

Tree manipulation

    $node->unlink;
    $node->replace($other);
    $node->insert_before($other);
    $node->insert_after($other);
    $node->prepend_child($other);
    $node->append_child($other);

unlink removes a node and all its descendants from the tree.

replace replaces $node with $other, unlinking $node.

insert_before and insert_after insert the $other node before or after $node. append_child and prepend_child append or prepend $other to the children of $node. $other is unlinked before it is moved to its new position.

These methods may die on failure, for example if the document structure is violated.
